Having enjoyed a double decade as an integral role player in the Toni & Guy family, celebrity hairdresser and reputed businessman Phil Smith has earned his rightful place on the creative path of hairdressing. The winner of too many titles to mention has given Phil carte blanche to British Hairdressing Awards Hall of Fame.The icing on the cake however has to be the launch of his signature award winning haircare line available at Sainsbury’s nationwide.

Although Phil still maintains a day or two cutting hair on the salon floor, he travels extensively answering the haircare needs of a collective of celebrity including Tess Daly, Vernon Kaye, Flavia Cacace, Jill Halfpenny, Michelle Keegan and Chris Moyles.

Phil’s other enjoyment lies in his home life which includes wife Louise, daughter Ellie and son George, and a couple of relatively new acquirements in the form of westie’s Smithy and Smudge. Another enjoyment he admits to is still getting a buzz from seeing his own Be Gorgeous Haircare line on shelf. “If either myself or my family ever pass a Sainsbury’s we are in there checking the stand!”
